The coordination team works to implement and harmonize The CHAIN Network's research activities at each site while considering their specific capacities. The team manages the mechanics of CHAIN such as finances, design of research tools (i.e. Case Report Forms and Standard Operating Procedures), database and website management, and progress reports. The team also oversees logistics, communication, as well as sample processing and handling. Their main goals are to ensure that procedures are correctly implemented and actively troubleshoot with local partners to solve or mitigate any issues.
